Texas allows bank account levy by a creditor judgment. Wage garnishment is only allowed if the creditor does not have any other means of executing the judgment.

Can you be sued in Texas and have your wages garnished?

Hi there. I am a Texas collection attorney. You can have your wages garnished in Texas ONLY for child or spousal support. That's what the Texas Constitution says. So if you are not being sued for child or spousal support, your wages cannot be garnished to satisfy a judgment. Hope this helps. Good luck. Although Texas does have a statute that prevents wage garnishment by a judgment creditor there is an exception if no other method is available for the creditor to execute said judgment. This means that if the judgment debtor does not have personal or real property (bank account, real estate, etc.) that can be attached or liquidated to satisfy the judgment amount wage garnishment is possible.

Can a debtor's wages or bank account be garnished for credit card debt.?

Yes. In any state, a credit grantor may garnish wages, but only after receiving a judgment in their favor from the court. In other words, they'd have to sue you, win and be granted an order for the garnishment. * Texas only allows wage garnishment if there is no other method for the creditor to execute the judgment. For example if the debtor does not have a bank account that can be levied, other non exempt property that can be seized and sold or real property for which a lien can be placed.

Can you be sued for credit card debt in Texas?

Yes. The credit card company can get a judgment against you from the court ordering you to pay the debt. If you can't, your wages can be garnished. In a situation like this, it's best to proacticontact the lender and work out a payment plan rather than have it turned over to a court. Texas does not allow wage garnishment unless it is the only method for a creditor to execute a judgment. The state does allow levy of bank accounts (including joint accounts) seizure and sale of non exempt property belonging to the debtor, and liens against real property (but not a forced sale of a primary residence). Texas is a community property state which means that in some instances joint marital property can be seized, levied or have a lien placed against it when only one spouse is the debtor. I work in the business in Texas and no your property cannot be seized or bank account cannot be levied for a credit card debt LUCKILY, TEXAS IS THE ONLY STATE THAT DOES NOT ALLOW WAGE GARNISHMENTS BY CREDIT CARD COMPANYS. WAGES CAN ONLY BE GARNISHED FROM THE IRS OR FOR CHILD SUPPORT.
